University of Louisville’s Megan Berberich, center, continues to play with her shoe in her hand after it fell off during game play and the referee failed to stop play to allow her to put the shoe back on. The Louisville women’s soccer team was playing in the Wake Forest Invitational Tournament against Virginia Tech at Spry Field in Winston Salem on August 30, 2013. The game ended in a 1-1 tie after two overtime periods.

360 Pano

This is not my photo of the day, but it’s too cool not to share. I took this series of shots yesterday as part of a lab assignment for Digital Imaging class. It’s a 360 degree panoramic view of the heart of the Randolph Community College, morphed to look like a tiny planet. Come to think of it, the photography department often feels like it’s own little world. I think that’s why I like this so much. This technique is a fun little trick to have in my back pocket. Tiny world!!

A young woman checks her reflection in the window of a limousine on display at the Let’s Talk Cars & Trucks Show in the parking lot of Kagan’s Furniture in High Point, NC on August 29, 2013.

I am getting used to having my camera and just walking around taking pictures of random things and people and not feeling weird about it. It’s all about the attitude. It’s been a long day and I wasn’t in the talking mood when I headed to the car show so I didn’t ask anybody their name. I didn’t ask if I could take pictures. I looked for the light and waited for moments and snapped a few nice frames. I missed the moment just before this when there were two girls checking their hair. Ah, well. Maybe next time.

20130827_POD_egglady_

Miss Joanne comes over every two weeks to get a dozen eggs from our chickens. I feel bad letting her pay $2 and she feels bad paying only $2. Today we also gave her hot peppers which I think she was too polite to decline. Sometimes she stays to chat a while but today she sensed the craziness that is the first week of school and only stayed a minute. We walked together across the street back to her house so I could snap a picture. I said to her, “I have to take a picture every day!” and she looked at me funny and I realize how silly it sounds when I say that. I’m making this project much harder than it needs to be. Just take a picture. Or in this case, two.
